AOC raised $200,000 for charity on her 'Among Us' Twitch stream Friday

New York Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is now a pro (or close to it) at Twitch and the popular game Among Us, having streamed to over 400,000 people back in October with fellow Rep. Ilhan Omar. She's one of the few politicians who's managed to use platforms like Twitch to reach voters in an effective way — and she employed the tactic again Friday night, albeit for a different cause.

Ocasio-Cortez played Among Us on Friday, this time to raise money for food pantries, eviction defense legal aid, and community support organizations: 

Today I’m using the stream to fundraise for local food pantries, eviction defense legal aid, & community support organizations.

So many people are having a hard time in this crisis. If you’re able, you can help direct aid here efforts here:https://t.co/Dn7xy2LXCT
